Digital cameras- What do you have?

Hey folks,

I am doing some research on finally getting a digital camera. I am leaning towards a Canon IXUS 400 that i can get for $700 that is $900 RRP on the Canon site (http://www.canon.com.au/products/cam...alixus400.html) and was advertised here in geelong for $1050 at The Good Guys! This baby can do everything i need, especially with movie modes it offers

Have any of you guys got one of these or similar Canon model (V2 OR II)? Any problems i should know about. I am new to digi cams so any assistance or pointers would be much appreciated

Would love to hear what digi cams people on here are using........

Thread moved - guys please remember The Pub is for general car related chat. The Asylum is for non-car related offtopic chat.

Thanks.

Re: Digital cameras- What do you have?

Oh and as for the topic, there are plenty of threads on the subject. My pick would be any of the Canon range, particularly the S or G series.

Thumbs up Re: Digital cameras- What do you have?

Thanks to the 'persuasive' advise of a certain stripe hating 'sparkly' person, i am now the proud owner of a Canon S45....picked one up locally for $890...absolute bargain and what a fantastic device (toy) it is!

Re: Digital cameras- What do you have?

Just check that the cameras off that website have Australian or Intl Warranties and not Hong Kong !

Otherwise, yeah, go the Canons. Ive just talked Paxtons cameras down to match dirtcheapcameras on a Canon g3 - $1037

I got the Sony DSC-F717 its an awesome camera with probably one of the best lenses I have seen on a dig still with built in lens... If size of the camera is an issue, try the Sony DSC-V1, otherwise the Nikon 5400 and 5700 are both pretty good. If size isnt an issue go the F717, and if money isnt an issue buy the D100
